    If you own a T-mobile Galaxy Note 5 get ready to experience the Marshmallow version of Touchwiz! Just a few days ago the update was pushed to an XDA member's phone. He pulled the update and provided a system dump to the community who then built an odin flashable tar! Before installing this know that it will trip knox since it is using a non stock boot.img. This build does not have a recovery which could be dangerous.

    While this is likely not a complete build we still get to see the long list of improvements Samsung is bringing to Touchwiz! The UI has been updated slightly and looks a bit cleaner. What really stands out about the new touchwiz is the improved benchmark scores and performance. This new build includes new animations, snappier performance, optimizations to multitasking (which has been a sore thumb for Samsung), and you can now customize shortcuts.

    If you are the type of person that has to stay on the cutting edge no matter the cost grab the tar from the link below.

    Man, I got excited when I saw the persistent WIFI notification gone, but realized it was gone on the new and old. They are obviously rooted and removed it that way I suppose.

    My Verizon Note 5 wifi notification is gone. You're able to turn it off from the settings I believe. I think it was one of the first things I did when I booted up the device.

    edit: Yup, all I did was turn off Wifi Notifications.

    Can't you clear the "persistent" notification now? On my S4, it was ALWAYS there, but on the Note 4, they switched it so at least you could swipe it away and/or get rid of it with a "clear all." Is that not the case on the Note 5, or are you just bothered that it comes back randomly?

    It won't let me swipe it away, it is always there taking up room on my notification panel. Clear does not take it away either. Nothing I can see in the settings to make it go.

    It's the one that's actually a notification that you're connected, right? That's crazy. I was so happy to get the Note 4 and be able to dismiss that. Can't believe they went back to making it stay there all the time.

    That is lame! That would be an AT&T thing but why they would need to remove that setting makes no sense. Here's the same settings for vzw N5...[​IMG]

    We had similar conversations when we all got our Note 4's. My VZW version didn't have the tabbed view in settings that all the videos showed you could switch to from the list view. @mountainbikermark thought I was nuts when I couldn't find it in my settings.

    It's weird the small things they tweak for the different carriers. Here we though we'd moved beyond the days when even the body of a phone would be slightly different depending on which carrier you purchased it from, but we're still seeing these core functions/features/settings not match up on the variants.

    Makes me sad because I really hate that persistent notification.
